Worst NBA MVP Winners

The Top Ten

1 LeBron James 2008-2009 LeBron James 2008-2009 LeBron Raymone James is an American professional basketball player for the Cleveland Cavaliers of the National Basketball Association. LeBron has played for the Heat and the Cavaliers.

Lebron had better PER

Yao Ming should've won

Wade is better Whyy

Lebron had one of the greatest seasons ever, had a better PER than Wade, and led a mediocre team to a 66-16 record. How did he not deserve the MVP?

2 Derrick Rose 2010-2011 Derrick Rose 2010-2011 Derrick Martell Rose is an American professional basketball player for the Chicago Bulls of the National Basketball Association.

Derrick Rose is just a bigger allen inverson and we all know how that turned out. The bulls recent wins look much easier without him taking 30 shots a game including several poor 3point shot selections.

Winner: Derrick Rose
Should have won: LeBron James

3 Steve Nash 2004-2005

Steve Nash did deserve it. He led a nothing team to the conference finals both years and if he wasn't their shaq wouldn't have led them to the playoffs at all

This is by far the worst. Shaq was way better and kobe should have won the other one gifted to him. Never the best pg in the game, let alone best player

4 Dirk Nowitzki 2006-2007

Yes its true, they did get spunked by the Warriors in the playoffs but in the regular season Dirk led his team to a record-breaking franchise 67-15 record in the league so he DEFINITELY deserved the award - Invictus

Kobe had arguably the best scoring season in the nba history(behind wilt 50 point average). Over 20 occasions where he score more than 40 points and more than five 60+ points occasions not to mention the 81 points

5 Steve Nash 2005-2006

Last time I checked was that in 2006 Kobe was the last seed in the West and was pushed out by the Suns in the first round

Just because he's Kobe and led his team to the playoffs doesn't matter at all. He lost in the first round to Steve nash

Kobe should have won this one. Criminal for anyone else to win it

Clearly wasn't the best that year. Should have been given to Kobe

Should've been: Alonzo Mourning or Tim Duncan

Kobe is an alligator. He don't want to pass the ball to his teammates.

The Contenders

11 Stephen Curry 2014-2015 Stephen Curry 2014-2015

All he does is shoot, and have minutes, Lebron should of won it or Anthony Davis

I wonder, is 24 points and 8 assist sound familiar, Damian pillars a year later exept he got no all star aperance when he had one less assist and more points and carried his team to 5th in the west.

12 LeBron James 2011-2012 LeBron James 2011-2012 LeBron Raymone James is an American professional basketball player for the Cleveland Cavaliers of the National Basketball Association. LeBron has played for the Heat and the Cavaliers.

Yeah no doubt Durant should have won that year but Durant didn't make a big enough contribution in the playoffs

The reason why the thunder lost to heat in the finals is because the team was to young

Winner: LeBron James
Should Have Won: Kevin Durant

Lebron had a way higher PER than Durant and beat him in their matchups. He was way better. 2011-12 wasn't even Durant's best season (not even close)

13 Michael Jordan 1991-1992

Winner: Michael Jordan
Should have won: Clyde Drexler

14 Stephen Curry 2015-2016

He is lucky that Lebron, Westbrook, or Durant but nope, logic of the voting for MVP seemly was trown out the window all because he got a 3 point shoot
